Cameroon: The African side lost their opening game of Qatar 2022 1-0 to Switzerland. That leaves them third in Group G without a single point to their name ahead of Matchday 2. They’re level with Serbia while both Brazil and Switzerland are three points ahead. Cameroon quite simply need to beat Serbia if they’re to stand a chance of progressing to the next phase of the World Cup. Brazil are in a class of their own, so victory over Serbia would enable Cameroon to go toe-to-toe with Switzerland in the final game of the group phase. That would still be a long shot, of course, as that game is against Brazil. But their opening day defeat has left them with no other choice. If they want the round of 16 they must win.
Serbia: Serbia are in a similar situation to Cameroon although with one notable difference. They’ve already gotten Brazil, the clear favorites to win the group, out of the way. That means they could conceivably target six points from their final two group games and that should be enough to secure passage to the knockout stage. Serbia lost their opening fixture to Brazil 2-0 and therefore are rooted to the bottom of the table ahead of Matchday 2. But should they secure victory over Cameroon, that could change the complexion of matters significantly and create a situation where Cameroon and Switzerland effectively engage in a playoff in the final group game for that second spot.
